Join Us for a Special Lecture with AUTHOR URBANO SALVATI
“The legend of a pumpkin house”
A delightful and timely story that represents a fairy tale for today’s world.
The author never tires of his love for children. He views them as beautiful flowers that are always blossoming. “The pristine love of children elicited in our hearts is the ultimate meaning of our lives. There is no greater joy for any parent than the first smile of a child.”
The story begins with a retired couple, Mr. and Mrs. Fiorina, who give a special Halloween party with lots of pumpkin decorations for the neighborhood children. In the midst of the fun, someone suggests they should create a real pumpkin house. The Fiorinas are overwhelmed by the generosity of their neighbors who make the Pumpkin House a reality.
The Fiorinas realize that the kindness displayed by everyone made the Pumpkin House a place where kindness lives. And so it is that the Pumpkin House grows from town to town, eliciting kindness and happiness everywhere.
In his heart, the author cultivates the beauty of a smile, the gentleness of a kind soul, and the pristine love that makes us all human.
